Bears sign former Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers
Jacquizz Rodgers signed a one-year contract with Chicago Tuesday, the team announced.
The move adds depth to the Bears' running back corps and removes Rodgers from the franchise he called home for the first four years of his NFL career: Atlanta.
The 25-year-old former Oregon State standout played in each of the Falcons' 16 games last season, amassing 217 yards and scoring one touchdown.
Rodgers backed up Michael Turner and Stephen Jackson during his time in Atlanta.
Chicago finished 27th out of 32 teams in overall rushing yards and rushing average last season.
